I'm interested in how scientists and humanists build software tools (research software), and how scholarly commitments are inflected in the everyday work of managing software projects.

Cultural history of media and technology
Clinical Assistant Professor of Digital Humanities
New York University - Draper Interdisciplinary Master's Program

My research focuses on the study of media (both material devices and cultural texts) through the lenses of political economy and sociology of culture. I recently completed an exhibit titled The Interface Experience: Forty Years of Personal Computing that considers how interface design has influenced computational and cultural experiences in the age of the personal computer. I also study the role of intellectual property in cultural production and am working on a book project on the development of corporate theatrical production in the late 1990s and the role of intellectual property in shaping commercial theatrical practices.

I am also interested in the intersection of interactive technology into pedagogy and through my work at NYU I work with faculty, staff, and students to find new ways to integrate digital media into scholarship and teaching. To that end I have also published about, taught, and lectured about the current and future potential for new creative and theoretical approaches to academic work through the use of alternative media practices.

History of Computing particularly in New Zealand. In 2010 I completed my PhD research which evaluated the contribution that ICTs make to regional development, by researching the development of ICT networks in two regions of New Zealand between 1985 and 2005. In 2010 I edited a book, "Return to Tomorrow: 50 years of computing in New Zealand" to mark the 50th anniversary of the New Zealand Computer Society. I am currently collecting some oral histories from key figures in NZ computing.

In 2008-2009, Subramanian was awarded a Fulbright Senior Researcher grant to study the effects and consequences of Internet spread in rural India.
Prior to joining Quinnipiac University, Subramanian worked at IBM Advanced Technology Lab as Senior Software Engineer. He was the project lead for the development of a new-generation collaboration tool, which has since become the IBM Community Tools Suite. He was also the project lead for the development of an intra-company P2P resource sharing prototype code-named “Mesh,” and holds two U.S. patents in these areas. Prior to IBM, Subramanian has held the following positions: Associate Professor of MIS (tenured), College of Business and Public Policy, University of Alaska, Anchorage; Instructor of Computer Science, Rutgers University, NJ; Member of the Technical Staff (MTS), Database Research District, Bell Communications Research, Morristown, NJ; Consultant, Anchorage Chamber of Commerce; Consultant, British Petroleum Exploration, Anchorage, Alaska.
